Jack Daniel’s releases new 12-year-old whiskey
LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — It comes from just 300 barrels that have been sitting in Lynchburg rickhouses for nearly 12 years. And today, it makes its long-awaited debut. On Tuesday, the Jack Daniel Distillery announced the release of its new 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey along with Batch 2 of its 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey. The limited whiskies are the latest in Jack Daniel’s Aged Series, an annual release of age-stated expressions that celebrate the brand’s heritage.
“The Jack Daniel Distillery is one of the most complete whiskey distilleries in the world, and we’re fortunate to have a deep history to draw inspiration from and craft premium whiskeys in a way that stays true to our heritage of quality and innovation,” said Chris Fletcher, Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller. “We released our first age-stated whiskey since the early 1900s in this series about a year ago and were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response. We know there is a lot of excitement for our Aged Series, and we can’t wait to share Batch 2 of our 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey along with the first release of our 12-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey.”
Whiskey Advocate Magazine named the original 10-Year-Old as one of the Top 20 Whiskies of 2021 and it earned a World Whiskies Award as World’s Best Tennessee Whiskey from Whisky Magazine in 2022.
